DLReady certification, awarded by Promega Corp., validates an instrument that has passed the strict performance levels and standards required for the Dual-Luciferase Reporter (DLR) assay system.

BMG LABTECH’s Newest Series of Multifunctional Readers with Unique High Speed Full Spectrum Absorbance

DLReadyTM certification, awarded by Promega Corp., validates an instrument that has passed the strict performance levels and standards required for the Dual-Luciferase® Reporter (DLRTM) assay system. DLRTM is one of the most commonly used luminescence assays for measuring gene transcription in a microplate format. Using firefly and Renilla luciferases as reporter genes, the DLRTM Assay System rapidly quantifies gene expression in transfected cells or in cell-free transcription/translation reactions.

BMG LABTECH’s FLUOstar Omega, POLARstar Omega, and LUMIstar Omega have all been certified by Promega. The Omega is the world’s only DLReadyTM multidetection microplate reader that can capture a full absorbance spectrum (220 to 850 nm) at a resolution of 1 nm. Read times faster than 1 second per well are possible. This makes the Omega the 3rd series of BMG LABTECH life science readers that have been DLReadyTM certified, along with the OPTIMA and Galaxy series and the NOVOstar microplate reader with micropipettor.

For technical information on performing the DLRTM assay on the FLUOstar Omega, POLARstar Omega, or LUMIstar Omega microplate reader, an application note can be downloaded at: www.bmglabtech.com/application-notes/luminescence/dlr.cfm.
